I got a chance to review Jo-Anne Blanco’s Morgan La Fay, Small Things and Great. It’s got a more fairytale feel than fantasy I’ve read of late.
Blanco’s world building is spot on as she recast traditional Arthurian elements to fit her tale. She even does something that few writers do well: use weather to set moods and situations. All the necessary elements are present to entrench the narrative in the Pendragon mythos and it reminded me in many ways of Mists of Avalon when the magical elements crossed into territory usually reserved for church (or maybe Lawhead’s Patrick) though Blanco’s book is a much easier read.
The writing is accessible and I wouldn’t have any reservations to recommending this book to most readers.
I got a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review. You can get it on Amazon by clicking here.
